    Amendment 1 In North Carolina………………………? It was already against the law in North Carolina (since 1996) for gays to marry…so why did they insist there be a public vote?

    Does anyone know all the BS that was tacked onto the bill?

    LGBT: What Do You Think Of This Statement? This was a response to my question about North Carolina banning Same-sex marriage,

    “OVER 60% voted against gay marriage….can we stop bringing it up please? The American people just DON’T want it. DEAL with it and move on.”

    What do you think?

    What Do You Feel About The Loss For Gay Marriage In North Carolina? If you haven’t been on yahoo as of yet you would have missed the article announcing how the vote for same-sex marriage didn’t pass in North Carolina. What do you think about this, also what is everyone’s opinion on Obama saying that he’ll work for Marriage Equality?

      I can’t draw a circle right and now this? Ugh, I’m not having a good day. *ahem* Anyway, it sucks. I don’t live in Carolina, but it’s sad to hear when other places lose the vote like that.

      “What do you think about this, also what is everyone’s opinion on Obama saying that he’ll work for Marriage Equality?”

      That so far it seems he isn’t directly punching what he said in the face? I’m actually amazed that a president put their personal feelings aside for the sake of equal rights, they don’t tend to do that, and it’s one better than the PM we have in Australia.

    Confused About The Whole Gay Marriage Issue In NC? What exactly happened ?
    Before the voting, was there an issue about gay marriage in another state, and living in North Carolina?
    If so, does this do anything to those who were married by means of another state and are living in NC now?
    This in no way helps me or hurts me, but it’s for the sake of arguing with my girlfriend, xD

    Is There A State Where There Was A Referndum Vote By The People Where Gay Marriage Was Approved? There are several states where the legislature has passed a law for gay marriage (New Jersey) but is there one where gay marriage was approved by popular vote (North Carolina, no?

    Why Did Democrats In North Carolina Fight To Abolish Gay Marriage & Civil Unions And Why Didn’t GOP Stop Them? Once again; liberals try to turn a majority(heterosexuals) against a minority(homosexuals) and allow that tyrannical majority to strip the minority of its rights and harm its interests.
    Two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for lunch. Why didn’t conservatives try and stop them?
